Start off with a morning stroll and run around the Witzand Aquifer Conservation Area. A highlight here must certainly be the Atlantis Dunes. Covering an area of roughly 32 square kilometres with white sand dunes reaching up to 50 metres high, this majestic, temporal landscape is soft and inviting.

For the regular traveller, there are plenty of good exploration and photographic options if the weather plays along. On clear days, you can see Table Mountain off in the distance with the dunes being a mere 45 minute drive north of the Mother City.
